    • KDE neon User
    • UEFI
    • No
    • Partial Success
    • Bionic it seems deprecated encrypted homes so you won't be able to login graphically after upgrading, installing encryptfs-utils semi fixes this however it is apparently not very reliable now
    • 27-06-27: not found any issues with encrypted home yet everything seems to be working ok so far
    • 29-06-2018: now noticed this error in dmesg on each boot, still seems to mount home ok though, anyone else seeing this?
      • [ 33.378048] Could not find key with description: [01521d6d47952845]
      • [ 33.378067] process_request_key_err: No key
      • [ 33.378068] Could not find valid key in user session keyring for sig specified in mount option: [01521d6d47952845]
      • [ 33.378089] One or more global auth toks could not properly register; rc = [-2]
      • [ 33.378089] Error parsing options; rc = [-2]
    • 28-06-2018: also just to note that release is currently broken, so if you haven't updated since yesterday you might want to avoid doing so for a bit
    • 29-06-2018: bionic usable again
    • 25-07-2018: switched over from release to user with no problems
  • Clay Weber
    • 25-6-2018
    • KDE Neon User
    • UEFI
    • Secure boot: NO
    • Upgrade installed successfully
    • Same problem as Kenny D above - I have an encrypted /home- Could not login to desktop, installing ecrypts-utils fixed the issue. No other issues found
  • Louis Weddall
    • 2018-06-25
    • KDE Neon User Edition 5.13
    • UEFI
    • No
    • Upgrade installed successfully
    • Xenial repositories are disabled, yet still listed in Discover, which could cause some confusion.
  • René Fritz
    • 2018-06-28
    • KDE Neon Developer Stable Edition
    • Bios
    • No
    • Upgrade installed successfully
    • no problems, except that in /etc/lsb-release is DISTRIB_ID=neon (again) instead of DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu which breaks adding a ppa with add-apt-repository
  • Jakeir
    • 2018-06-28
    • Neon User Edition - KDE 5.13.1
    • UEFI
    • YES
    • Upgrade successful
    • updating packages after upgrade caused the same issues as seen by Kenny D with encryptfs-util and 'Could not find a valid key in user session keyring for sig specified in mount option' - Currently unusable.
      • 2018-07-01 - completed another apt upgrade and reboot previous issues all resolved.
  • Lukas N
    • 2018-06-30
    • Neon User Edition

  • Kostiantyn Rybnikov
    • 2018-07-05
    • Neon User Edition
    • BIOS
    • Secureboot not enabled
    • Problems
    • After upgrade finished and asked me to reboot I am seeing "Could not start kdeinit5. Check your installation" and nothing works. Photo: https:// photos.app.goo.gl/nw9G7iUeBEjx6BQg9
  • Thibaut FRANCOIS
    • 2018-07-07
    • Neon User Edition
    • UEFI
    • Secureboot not enabled
    • Problems
      • In the boot's beginning, I had the message "error, no symbol table". Fixed : I rebuilded grub on /etc/sdb and not /etc/sda, sda is my windows partition
      • Like René, in /etc/lsb-release is DISTRIB_ID=neon (again) instead of DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu which breaks adding a ppa with add-apt-repository
      • After upgrade and the reboot I am seeing "Could not start kdeinit5. Check your installation". Fixed: I purged the nvidia driver with apt (sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia-*) , and install nvidia-390 (sudo apt install nvidia-390) from oibaf/graphics-drivers/ppa (maybe the repository "graphics-drivers" would be sufficient, I don't know)
      • Firefox and chromium didn't launch : "libwayland-egl.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory." Fixed: with "sudo apt-get install libwayland-egl1" (this library replace the libwayland-egl1-mesa)

    • Is your computer booting with BIOS or UEFI? UEFI

    • 2018-08-21
    • Installed an August version of 16.04 NEON User edition
    • computer booting with UEFI
    • Is secureboot enabled? Don't think so
    • Success with problems
    • Nvidia driver installed from PPA didn't work on boot, manually reinstalled, everything else seems to work. bootsplash no longer appears but this is a minor issue.
  • Martin S.
    • 2018-08-04
    • KDE neon User Edition 5.13
      • installed Kubuntu 14.04
      • upgraded to Kubuntu 16.04
      • upgraded to KDE neon User Edition 16.04 (by adding the neon.list file)
    • BIOS
    • No secureboot enabled
    • Success (after some fixes)
    • Comments:
      • I did not have neon-desktop installed, so the neon bionic upgrade notification did not appear after changing /etc/update-manager/meta-release.
        • Solution: install neon-desktop and restart the upgrade.
      • I did have some changes in the neon.list file, so the upgrade was not able to change the file correctly.
        • Solution: Revert the neon.list file to the xenial iso version and restart the upgrade.
      • I had problems with the screen lock after leaving the upgrade running unattended for a while. I could not log in anymore to finish the upgrade (the screen stays blank).
        • Solution: run "loginctl unlock-sessions" from a console (Ctrl-Alt-F1), switch back (Ctrl-Alt-F7) and finish the upgrade.

    • Comments

I had many packages/ppa's installed that were blocking the upgrade. I ended up blindly uninstalling things and getting back to almost stock before the upgrade finally started. Towards the end of the upgrade i got the error 2018-09-07 07:44:12,311 ERROR got an error from dpkg for pkg: 'python3-distupgrade': 'installed python3-distupgrade package post-installation script subprocess returned error exit status 1' the subsequent dpkg-reconfigure -a that the installer said it would do appeared to fixed it though. I needed to run an apt autoremove to remove all the old packages
